I am not a cook by any means, but I was invited to the Big Cheese Challenge when in Chicago a few weeks ago, and it sounded like an interesting party. Top Chef's 2012 runner-up Sarah Grueneberg was there to teach us about cheese platters, and we were even able to make our own creations after being assigned a theme - mine was Cinco de Mayo, and it was a lot of fun.

|My friend Melissa and I with our creations - my theme was Cinco de Mayo,|
and hers was Super Bowl. The themes were assigned randomly. And yes,
we did keep to keep those aprons! (as well as an awesome cheese knife)
What I ended up using the Cracker Barrel cheese for, though, was thin-crust pizza with turkey pepperoni. I used to make myself pizza all the time in college, but I haven't made it since I moved into my new apartment, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Sharp cheese on it. Delicious!
It turned out that the half with the sharp cheddar cheese was ridiculously good and later I wished I had put it on the entire pizza! (hindsight is 20/20 ...) I now know for my next exploration into pizza to do this, or I might try the Vermont Sharp-White - I bet that would taste good also.
I have two Cracker Barrel cheese product coupons to give to a lucky Yes/No Films reader - the coupons can be used for packages of Cracker Barrel's cheese chunks, cuts, or bars, and each one is worth up to $6.50 in value.
